Physical Therapy Q&A

What is physical therapy?

Physical therapy involves injury- or disease-specific stretches and exercises that improve muscle strength, reduce pressure on nerves, increase flexibility, and improve overall body functions naturally. 

At The Neurology Institute, the experienced team offers state-of-the-art, personalized physical therapy services Monday through Friday. Each treatment plan uses the latest in evidence-based medicine and scientific research. Patients receive individualized attention from world-class therapists. 

What are the benefits of physical therapy?

The benefits of attending physical therapy sessions at The Neurology Institute include:

  • Increases in strength
  • Faster healing after injuries
  • Improved range of motion
  • Reduced pain
  • Less pressure placed on nerves
  • Better coordination
  • Easier mobility
  • Reduced stiffness

The practice also provides occupational therapy to help patients recover from neurological conditions like strokes, carpal tunnel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injuries, neuropathy, and Parkinson’s disease. 

Is physical therapy right for me?

If you have a neurological condition, physical disability, injury, or ongoing pain, physical therapy may be the solution you need to live your best life. To tailor a physical therapy session that matches your needs, The Neurology Institute team reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle.

They complete a physical exam, including a neurological exam, and check your vital signs. Your neurologist may recommend that you complete nerve testing, blood tests, X-rays, a CT scan, an MRI, or another imaging procedure before customizing your treatment. 

What should I expect during physical therapy?

During physical therapy sessions, your provider helps you complete muscle strengthening or flexibility training using cutting-edge equipment. You might complete weight-bearing exercises, stretches, or cardiovascular training to maximize healing and improve nerve and soft-tissue functioning. You may undergo occupational therapy in addition to physical therapy.

Your therapist often gives you exercises to complete at home between in-office sessions at The Neurology Institute. 

How often do I need physical therapy?

It’s important to attend each scheduled physical therapy session at The Neurology Institute to reap the most benefit of treatment. You might attend sessions several times weekly, once a week, or as needed. Your specialist lets you know when to schedule your next visit.
